Small ruminant value chains to reduce poverty and increase food security in India and Mozambique Outcome Mapping Mozambique
How did you put OM into practice? What we planned to do after July 2011 –Make an overview of data that were already collected –6 types of information collected by CARE Producer group registration (once, group level) Participant registration (once, individual) Paravet participation (twice, for training) Register of producer trainings (group, every training) Register of goats sales at fairs (every fair) Animal health and productivity tool (regularly by paravets) –IP process: –IP reports (every IP meeting)
How did you put OM into practice? For additional data: –Design 4 outcome journals: 1 for each boundary partner –Ask CARE project and extension officers to regularly fill in each journal based on their observations
How did you put OM into practice? What we did: –Before using the journal we had a team meeting with the objective to discover what OM information the entire imGoats team ‘intuitively’ can come up with – know by heart - and to test if the idea of a monthly meeting to gather information works.
OM team meeting It was useful to talk about changes – instead of writing. Experiences and ideas of all team members can be shared. Use the Journal questions as basis for discussion.
OM team meeting The total amount of information the team knows ‘intuitively’ seemed to be sufficient to collect OM data in a monthly meeting. The meeting took almost 4 hours to discuss all progress markers. This was considered acceptable. The collected OM data seemed to be more robust when discussed – and questioned – by the entire team, instead of asking individuals to fill in a form. The value of such a meeting goes beyond OM data collection; it was considered very useful for all team members to discuss project progress and challenges together.
OM team meeting Unclear if the depth of the collected data is sufficient for a robust OM analysis. A recording device appeared to be useful to check the information when composing the report. It was not decided yet how to report on OM (incl. language of notes and reports).. It would be good to verify behavioural changes and follow- up questions with stakeholders in the field through field visits.
Adjustments and follow-up Small adjustments in OM framework: –A few progress markers have been reformulated or removed. Adjustment of tools: –Four outcome journals were merged into one ‘facilitator guide’ –Questions were added on Capacity building & Gender Agreement on frequency of meetings: –Monthly OM team meeting. Language of data: –Meetings are in Portuguese, notes are made in English (by Mila and Birgit). –Notes are translated into Portuguese to share with team members before next meeting. Qualitative data file: –One document (OM report) is monthly updated with the notes of each meeting and information from IP reports. Field visits: –Based on most recent OM meeting, to follow-up and verify data.
